We released a significant firmware update AND a new firmware updater late Nov 2018 for capsule 2.0s and vision props.

Click to find out: 

To update your capsule 2.0 or vision prop firmware:

  1. Download and install the relevant updater - there is one for MacOS, one for Windows and one for Linux in the attachments section on this page (scroll all the way down to download).
    --> For MacOS, download the WHOLE folder! Don't open the folder/the contents piecemeal, or it won't work.

  2. Open the updater on your computer and click on the podpoi image for capsule 2.0 updates, and relevant vision prop image for your vision prop:

  3. You'll get to this window:
    • leave firmware version as "auto update" to load the latest version
    • click "Next step"

  4. You'll get to this window:

  5. Plug in your flowOS light via usb to your computer.
    Pro-tip: It must be unplugged from any USB and off/dark for more than 60 sec. to automatically connect to the updater without a reset. This is the fastest, easiest way to update your firmware if you have a new-ish capsule 2.0.

    • Capsules only:
    • If you have a new-ish capsule and it has been dark for >60 seconds, it should light up blue :)
    • If you have an older capsule 2.0 (with beta bootloader), it should show the battery charge indicator. If not, press the button to turn on, as it must be on/running to connect to the updater. 
    • If your capsule does NOT light up blue, or if it shows the charge indicator, please RESET it while plugged in. Click here for reset instructions
    • If you have an older capsule 2.0, it should go dark when it's connected to the updater - you'll see it show up in the updater (see window below). We are working on the ability to update the bootloader over USB so in the future, older capsule 2.0s will connect more easily (turn blue).

  6. If your light is connected to the updater, you'll see a confirmation on the window:

  7. Click "Upload" - new firmware should start updating ... do NOT disconnect while this is happening

  8. When firmware has been updated (should be a few seconds), you'll get a confirmation screen:

  9. You can now update more connect props, or go explore all the new awesome :)
